the BEST Homemade Strawberry Cake

This is an easy strawberry cake that does NOT use a white cake mix as its base. This strawberry cake from scratch recipe is super, super easy so please don't run off scared and think you can't make this. You totally can! I just want to be upfront and let you know ASAP that, although I use Jello in my cake, this isn't one of the cake mix + jello recipes.

Homemade strawberry cake is about as summer as summer can get. The best way to spend a summer evening, in my opinion, is sitting on the porch with a cup of coffee and strawberry cake. I'll take a puppy on my feet, a happy teenager on the hammock, and the sounds of a busy neighborhood all around.


Can you see it? Can you hear it?

Ingredients
1 3/4 cups white sugar
3 ounce strawberry flavored gelatin raspberry totally works, also
1 cup butter softened
4 eggs room temperature
2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 cup milk room temperature
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 cup strawberries
1/2 teaspoon salt

Instructions
Preheat oven to 350degrees. Grease and flour 2 8inch cake rounds.
Puree your strawberries, transfer to a small saucepan and boil gently until reduced by half (about 20 minutes). Cool completely. You want to end up with about 1/2 cup pureed strawberries --->TIP: double your strawberries if you want to make the strawberry frosting. You'll save yourself the step of doing those later!
Add butter, sugar, vanilla, and jello to a large mixing bowl. Beat until smooth.
Add eggs one at time beating between each egg.
In a separate bowl mix flour, salt, and baking powder.
Add milk and flour alternately to the butter mixture. Beat well after each addition.
Gently fold in strawberry puree.
Pour into prepared cake pans.
Bake for  35-40 minutes or until toothpick in the center comes out clean.
